I'm training for what I hope will be a more successful backpacking season here. I'm going swimming about every other day at the rec center ( like a YMCA).
Hoping to be more active with the hiking club and finish the Long Trail.
I'm probably going to continue to be a "trail wuss" with limiting my trips to a week at most.
Things were very problematic for my feet/ankles last summer so I was forced to quit. I ended up with open sores on my foot and I was limping along in pain. I have some issues with my ankles being bent inwards.
It was a group hiking trip so some people got mad at me
I bought some expensive foot support thingees, so I hope it solves that now.
I'm fairly well equipped, as in I'm prepared. As some of you may know, you can keep on buying more and more better and lighter gear.
Naturally if you can share any experiences of hiking with a chi, that'd be nice as I'd love to be going out with my new trail dog that I don't have yet.
